Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy – Encounter Program

Encountering anthroposophy can be challenging.

Envigorate your experience by exploring it with others.

This program meets every Saturday throughout the school year and gives you an in-depth experience through lectures, discussions, and artistic activities. The Encounter program encourages you to grow in knowledge and understanding with others as you work with a well-qualified and diverse faculty.

You will:

  • Explore a systematic path through the basic ideas of anthroposophy.
  • Learn through artistic activities: eurythmy, painting, clay, and drawing.
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of meeting fellow students and exploring new ideas with them.
  • Study the rhythms and meaning in your own biography and destiny.
  • See anthroposophy in action at a Waldorf school and a biodynamic farm.
  • Develop a sense for the spiritual reality that points to meaning and purpose in our complex world.
